They say, “Time Flies when you are having fun!”
Please tell me I am not the only one where time is flying by WAY too fast!
Thanks Celia from Fig Jam & Lime Cordial for your In The Kitchen Series this month!
I really enjoy having “a peek” in other people’s kitchens!
It is fun to see what people are up to and what quirky gadgets, appliances or stories behind what is In Their Kitchen too!
For those who have been following my post, I had access to a Thermomix for a couple of weeks to see if I could achieve two goals.
Seeing the weather here in Adelaide has been very unpredictable, I made this Curried Lentil Soup with a Themomix Pull A Part using speck, sun-dried tomatoes and cheese!
I like “quirky, eccentric” things just that little but different! (just like me)
With such a wide variety of wonderful spices to always choose from, this month not only did I participate in Herbie’s Spice of The Month – Sumac Challenge, but really enjoyed creating my Pan-Grilled Eggplant with Sumac and Chilli with Baked Sumac Chips.
I always have some PEAKfresh bags on hand as with my PASSION and ENTHUSIASM for all things food, minimizing food wastage, extending the lives of fruits and veggies are extremely important to me and the environment!
These bags REALLY work and can be purchased within Australia and overseas!
While shopping one day, I saw Charcoal Organic Noodles!
I have never seen them before and cooking with Charcoal, combined with Noodles “intrigued” me!
Chile Mojo is one of my absolute favorite stores to “experience” in Adelaide.
While it is known to be “the store” for “hard to find necessities” for Mexican food, I have never cooked or baked with corn husks, so I put these on the list and they are “eagerly awaiting” what I can create with them too!
Having spent time in Egypt and being FASCINATED with all things Egyptian, I could not help myself but buy Four Leaf Milling (one of my favorite brands) Egyptian Gold Flour this month!
Did you know it is “derived from ancient khorasan wheat” and thought to have been found in an ancient Egyptian tomb?
You KNOW my S-Q-U-E-A-L-I-N-G food personality by now and thought these Bake & Serve Cupcakes (cupcakes baked in tea cups) would put a smile on anyone’s face!
Can you tell who can’t WAIT to make a cupcake and invite a friend or two over for a coffee or tea?
Of course should I change my mind in making the cupcakes in the teacups, I can always serve them on this fun-filled cake stand!
For people who know me, they KNOW I still view the world (and everything in it) with a very curious child-like view!
I STILL get E-X-C-I-T-E-D about all things food as if I was 5 years old again!
Friends by now know HOW “animated” I can become and how I speak ENTHUSIASTICALLY with my hands!
When I saw these cookie cutter messages…I KNEW they were coming home with me and they are In My Kitchen and love getting used for special occasions and days that end in “Y”!
Now that I am thinking about the origins of such a bizarre memory, it seems my Dad kept me entertained for HOURS doing the same thing.
Each time he lifted the lid, I always “thought” something magical would appear.
I never tired of the game and my dad would always end it with, “We will have to play another day” when something WILL appear!
The beautifully wrapped box was unwrapped with the first layer opened before we both even “thought” to take a photo!
Exquisitely romantic as we choose “the perfect” chocolate to indulge in with each other!
What did you enjoy most about this post today?
Does anyone else see a heart in my featured photo?
When you think of me, just think that every day is about FOOD FUN and child’s play!
